Elegant Beef Tenderloin


If you want to make your Manic Monday Marvelous, try this recipe!!! It is fantastic. It is delicious served with rice casserole, creamy cheese grits, or mashed potatoes. The leftovers are perfect on a salad or on a Sister Schubert roll as a sandwich! Bon Appetit!

Elegant Beef Tenderloin
1 5 lb. beef tenderloin, trimmed
1 1/4 tsp garlic salt
1 cup red wine
1/4 cup soy sauce
3/4 cup butter
1tsp lemon butter seasoning

Preheat oven to 425*F. Place meat in a highly greased shallow roasting pan & sprinkle w/ garlic salt. Bake for 10 mins. At the same time, combine wine, soy sauce, butter, & lemon pepper seasoning in a sm. saucepan. Cook until mixture is thoroughly heated. Pour over tenderloin. Bake an additional 30-40 minutes or until a thermometer registers 140*F (rare), basting occasionally w/ pan drippings. (Bake until thermometer reaches 150* for medium rare or 160F for medium). I bake it until 140*F as it continues to cook a little once it is out of the oven. If desired, garnish with grapes, celery leaves, and lemon zest. Enjoy!
